I’m so excited to finally reveal the end result of my bathroom reno! If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that this has been something that has been slowly but surely happening for quite a while. I know, this post is really image heavy (sorry not sorry). But I love my new bathroom.
It’s been fully decorated for maybe about a month or two now (I know, bad blogger here) and it just makes me so happy every day. I’m thrilled with how it turned out and am so glad I waited until I had every little detail bought and planned out before I actually put it all together.
I knew I wanted to do something with a “shabby chic” french country feel, but I also knew I wanted to have a fun colour on the walls. It took me a while to figure out an exact tone, but I couldn’t be happier with my end choice. I love this colour so much – it’s subtle, but different enough. It’s amazing what a huge difference a few coats of fresh paint can make!
The wall colour I picked in the end is “Flapper’s Fringe” by Para Paints. It really is a stunning colour, and Para Paints were kind enough to even gift me with the paint!
I’m pretty proud of the outcome, especially some of the little details that I created myself and the hidden gems I found all around Ontario in antique markets.
The mirror is one element that I’m really proud of. It actually was an antique brass mirror that I found it at an antique store in Toronto about a year ago. I got a wicked deal on it because it had a tiny chip in the corner, which didn’t bother me at all. I think the little chip actually is a part of it’s charm and adds great character to the piece. This was a really easy DIY piece too, which I really think “makes” the room.
I painted the mirror white using some white paint from Para Paints, and then used sand paper to distress the mirror. For some areas where I wanted the brass to really show through I rubbed on some candle wax first so that the paint would chip away a little more easily using this method. I did the same thing with one of the shelves too. (The one that has the black and blue showing through!)
Another thing I *really* love about my bathroom is that amazing vintage teacup night light! I actually saw one on Pinterest, but had no idea where to find one myself. I ended up finding this gem in an antique market in Waterford, Ontario, where I was also able to pick up some of those amazing vintage mason jars! I love mason jars for storage solutions – they can hold so much and still manage to add a design element to any space.
A lot of the other items and elements in this space were from Target Canada, which as you all know, I’m kind of obsessed with. But enough of that, time for some more photos! (Again, sorry not sorry.)
Okay I’m done swooning over my bathroom now. It really is amazing though what a little bit of paint and some new items can do to transform a space.
